Toupé - The Nexus Show
I'm writing this review before the link is complete...but that's ok, because I'm singin on it!
Singing might be the wrong word (I had a sore throat - tonsils like golf carts) - but no excuses here. What you hear is what you get.
I thought I'd explain a little about the venue and the show....
The Nexus is Southampton's premier Rock/Alternative club - capacity approx 450 people. The show we put on there was SKINDRED, with support from TOUPÉ and SOLITUDE.
It was a great night. We know Skindred quite well and it was fantastic to finally share the stage with them.
During our show - I was not expecting Karl and Aaron to burst into BEAT IT at the beginning. And during Kangarillapig I started taking the mick out of one of Skindreds songs - the next thing I know Benji Webbe (ex-DubWar and singer for Skindred) is grabbing the mic showing me how it's done - great for the crowd - who were itiching to see Skindred and Benji again. Great for me.
This is the second time I've tried ot write a review - in the first one I said I wouldn't give a star rating but then it failed and I lost the copy - so my star rating is a Five for fun.
Hope you enjoy it! :)
